    Richmond, VA statue of Gen. Lee to be removed

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/virginia-...211224215.html

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is expected to announce plans Thursday to remove one of the country’s most iconic monuments to the Confederacy, a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee along Richmond’s prominent Monument Avenue, a senior administration official told The Associated Press.

    The move would be an extraordinary victory for civil rights activists, whose calls for the removal of that monument and others in this former capital of the Confederacy have been resisted for years.

    “That is a symbol for so many people, black and otherwise, of a time gone by of hate and oppression and being made to feel less than,” said Del. Jay Jones, a black lawmaker from Norfolk. He said he was “overcome” by emotion when he learned the statue was to come down.

    The Democratic governor will direct the statue to be moved off its massive pedestal and put into storage while his administration seeks input on a new location, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak before the governor’s announcement.

    A judge in Virginia ruled this week that Gov. Ralph Northam (D) can take down a controversial statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that was erected in Richmond more than a century ago.

    Richmond Circuit Court Judge W. Reilly Marchant handed down the ruling on Tuesday, marking a turning point in the months-long legal battle between the state and a group of local residents that began shortly after he ordered the statue's removal earlier this year.

    However, the judge has temporarily prohibited the statue's removal pending appeal from the plaintiffs, who have up to a month to file a notice of appeal.

    Northam praised the ruling in a statement on Tuesday afternoon and said the move was a "step closer to a more inclusive, equitable, and honest Virginia."

    Lee wasn't even a supporter of slavery if I remember correctly. Only reason he fought for the Confederacy is because Virginia seceded.
